We found this super cute DIY Coffee Bean Christmas Ornament on favecrafts.com and just had to share the awesome idea because it makes your home smell AHmazing during the holidays. If you have a real Christmas tree, you're in for a real treat- the aroma of the beans complements pine perfectly for a cozy winter vibe.
Here's what you'll need:
3" styrofoam ball
Dark brown acrylic paint
Glossy acrylic sealer
3/4 cup whole roasted coffee beans
1/2 yard of gold sheer ribbon (1-1/2" thick)
4" gold cord
Gold metal ornament cap with wire hanger
1" flat paintbrush
Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
Here's how to put this beauty together:
Paint your styrofoam ball dark brown and let it dry.
Glue and insert metal ornament cap in foam ball.
Starting at the top, use your glue stick to glue coffee beans to the ball starting around metal cap. Continue to glue coffee beans in circular rows around ball until covered. Let it dry completely.
Spray coffee beans with sealer and allow to dry.
Hot glue tassel to center bottom of ornament.
Tie ribbon in a small bow and cut Vs into the ends of the ribbons. Hot glue gun the bow to the top of the ornament.
Thread your gold cord through the metal cap's wire hanger and knot ends to form loop. Glue knot to ornament.
Put it front and center on your tree for a great conversation starter. Let us know how it smells in the comments! :)
